Jennifer Aniston: ‘A whole generation’ now finds ‘Friends’ offensive
So no one told Jennifer Aniston life was gonna be this way.
The show that catapulted her to fame is now widely viewed as unfriendly and even offensive, a tragedy for comedy, she recently said.
“Comedy has evolved, movies have evolved,” Ms. Aniston told Agency France-Presse this week promoting her new Netflix film “Murder Mystery 2.”
The New York-set “Friends” debuted in 1994 and not only were all six principal cast members White but there were few minorities even in recurring and supporting roles.
“There’s a whole generation of people, kids, who are now going back to episodes of ‘Friends’ and find them offensive,” she said, though she didn’t specify the grounds for offense-taking herself.
